Bipartisan, bitches!

Shayera (who hat tips Blah3) points to an article in the Boston Globe that takes a walk down memory lane to visit Jack Abramoff: The Early Years.
In 1981, a newly elected president was about to shift the nation rightward, and a 22-year-old Brandeis graduate named Jack Abramoff -- savoring his own victory as the newly elected chairman of the College Republicans -- was hatching plans to transform the nation's young people into stalwart Reaganites.
It was the start of a career that would roil Washington 25 years later, and a phase of Abramoff's life that provided signposts toward his later demise.
''Our job," Abramoff wrote, ''is to remove liberals ''from power permanently -- [from] student newspaper and radio stations, student governments, and academia.
''We are replacing these leftists with committed conservatives."
Fast forward 25 years back to the present, and Shayera notes:
A lifelong Republican who never gave one red cent to Democrats and worked to make sure that the Democratic Party remained in the minority is now supposedly a "bipartisan scandal."
Yeah, funny how that works.
